Customer Reviews

The Weekly Standard App does not work

After subscribing to the app from iPad, I was able to access the magazine. After some update to IOS, I am unable to access any of the issues. After Several emails, and voice contacts, the Weekly Standard customer support and webmaster have been unable to solve the problem. They seem to have no clue about the app.

If I had to do it over again, I subscribe through the Weekly Standard web site rather than through iTunes.

App isn't on par with other magazines

Love the magazine but the app needs a lot of work. I want to read a magazine like a magazine. Not a tablet of contents that looks like a webpage. You can't just browse the magazine, you have to go form the table of contents to story back to table of contents back to next story.

Great Magazine, Unreliable App

I LOVE this magazine and am a digital only subscriber. The app worked well up until December 2014. But twice this month I was not able to download the latest edition on either my iPhone or iPad. They fixed it once, but it's happening again.
